Brie Larson had a simple, but very real initial reaction when she heard her named being announced for an Oscar nomination for work in Room.

“I thought, ‘Holy s–t!'” she said, adding, “It’s that mixed with a total flat line.”
She actually had just gotten home from a long day of work filming Kong: Skull Island in Australia.

“It was a very physical day, a lot of climbing. I just climbed mountains all day today in the hot Australian sun so I was just exhausted,” said Larson, 26. “So I was tired so I thought this is the perfect way to do it while your body is just really exhausted and you’re kind of relaxed about it.

“I didn’t realize how strong my reaction would be,” she continued. “My whole body was shaking. I started crying. It really was when they gave [Lenny Abrahamson] a best director nomination that I really lost it. He’s so deserving of it. So well deserved and so exciting to see.”

Room follows the journey of a young woman (Larson) who has been held captive in a shed for several years with her five-year-old son (Jacob Tremblay).

Larson’s Kong co-stars, which include Samuel L. Jackson and Tom Hiddleston, were ready to help her celebrate as soon as the noms were announced. “I’m on a giant text chain with all the actors from the movie,” she said. “There are like 14 of us on it and they all just flooded my phone and they said they were going to bang down my door with champagne. But it’s 12:15 a.m. and I have to get up for work in the morning so it just doesn’t seem reasonable to me. We’ll do champagne another day.”

Lots of bubbly will be flowing when the Oscars are handed out on Sunday, Feb. 28, at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood and will be televised live on ABC at 7 p.m. ET. Chris Rock is set to host for the second time.

On Sunday, Larson picked up a Golden Globe for her work in Room.

After the show, she recorded an Instagram video for the Globes. “My favorite moment was after I went back to my table after winning a Golden Globe, Katy Perry had a round of In-N-Out burgers for everybody,” she revealed. “Hot and fresh!”

Larson told me after the Globe nominations were announced that she’s “super into” jigsaw puzzles.
“They help me stay relaxed,” she said.

John Boyega and Brie Larson among Bafta rising star nominees !

Star Wars: The Force Awakens actor John Boyega has been included in the shortlist for this year’s rising star award at the Baftas.

The 23-year-old Londoner, who broke out in Attack the Block (2011), is one of five actors up for a prize previously won by James McAvoy and Tom Hardy.

This week has also seen Boyega included in Forbes’ annual 30 under 30 list, which praises talented young performers within entertainment, fashion and sport. The actor, who plays Finn in the record-breaking sci-fi sequel, will next star with Tom Hanks and Emma Watson in cyber thriller The Circle.

Brie Larson, who broke out in Short Term 12 in 2013, is also among the nominees and may be up for two prizes on the night, with her performance in heavily buzzed drama Room a favourite for best actress. The 26-year-old plays a woman imprisoned and abused in a shed with her son.

Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson, who also appeared alongside Johnny Depp in last year’s crime thriller Black Mass, is also nominated, as are Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service) and Bel Powley (The Diary of a Teenage Girl).

Last year the award, which is voted for by the public, went to Jack O’Connell, who appeared in Angelina Jolie’s second world war drama Unbroken. O’Connell will next be seen in Jodie Foster’s Money Monster alongside George Clooney and Julia Roberts.

The full list of Bafta nominations will be unveiled on 8 January.
